As the world’s population grows and emerging economies continue to develop, our agricultural environment is changing. Meats are a valuable source of protein and nutritional requirements, but the current methods of producing meat are wildly inefficient—from both an economic and environmental standpoint. Several start-up companies are combatting this problem by using stem cells to produce meat products for human consumption.
As reported in the Wall Street Journal, Memphis Meats cultures cattle stem cells into fully developed meat tissue. Why is this important? These same culturing techniques could pave the way for enhanced human-based stem cell culturing techniques, which would eventually yield multiple treatment options for a host of diseases. Stem cells’ potential applications extend far beyond the realm of healthcare as their multipotent capabilities are leading to numerous applications. Memphis Meats’ initiative in making stem cells and cell protocols widespread and commercially available will affect the ability of other companies to develop and advance human cell culturing techniques.
As regenerative engineering progresses, we believe the best stem cells to use in emerging treatments will be the patient’s own [autologous stem cells] as this negates the need to find a suitable donor and eliminates the chances of rejection of the transplanted tissue.
